American String Teachers Association Student Chapter
Membership in ASTA can be a very meaningful and rewarding experience. As a student member, you’ll receive the quarterly American String Teacher journal, networking opportunities via Facebook, discounted rates at ASTA conferences and workshops, and recognition through journal, website, and awards program. Plus, you may take advantage of all the national member programs and benefits that ASTA has to offer.
Membership as an individual student has many advantages, but membership in a student chapter adds strength, through unity, to become a strong voice for string music education. Through student membership, you can demonstrate your support for the improvement of string education and performance. ASTA can help you and your fellow students achieve your goals—and you can be actively involved in making things happen!
